Holy crap, what does it hurt to walk M. Cabrera? He only leads the majors in HRs, RBI, Hits and anything else he wants.
And a F-n Mizzou alumni giving up the HR! Terrible coaching!

Baseball 101: You never ever walk the go ahead run, especially in the bottom of the ninth. Also 2 great hitters were following him.

You also don't, on a 3-1 count to a smokin' hot hitter, throw a belt-high fastball down the middle. You throw a junk pitch or try to dot the low inside or outside corner.

Royals came back 3 times in the game. Really gutty performance by KC. Bummer to lose on a Cabrerra homer. I'd rather take on Prince and the other batters with a slow Cabrerra on 1st. If they pinch-run Cabrerra, then good, he'd be out of the game.

Baseball 102: he's batting f-n .500 for the series just waiting for a mistake. He showed us why and is showing us in game 5. Know-it-all 101?

His hits today isnt coming in the bottom of the ninth. Hell walk him everytime as far as I am concerned. Royals didnt have a prayer today against their ace.

Royals would have had a prayer if the real Bruce Chen hadn't shown back up. Scherzer wasn't great. But you don't take advantage of that with Dyson, Getz, and Escobar in the lineup and not much coming from the other 6 guys.

You just don't walk Cabrera there in that spot...if there were 1 or 2 outs....then yes, maybe consider it.

But with 0 outs...it would have been a foolish move.

Lead off walks score 38% of the time. Fielder and Martinez follow him, You pitch to him, he hit a good pitch.
